The Rotary Shakespeare Marathon is a 2-lap, undulating race starting and finishing in Stratford-upon-Avon and traversing the surrounding countryside. Crowds have been reported to be subdued in their support, but others also suggest that the race is well organised and a hit with runners.The Course includes the Greenway which, although not a road, has a firm, level and safe surface. The Registered Distance has been confirmed by the Association of Course Measurers as 26.2 miles for the marathon and 13.1 miles for the half marathon. Mile markers will be displayed throughout the course. Because part of the course (the Greenway) is off-road, entrants who wish to use their times to qualify for major international races should consult the organisers of those races to ascertain whether their times in the Rotary Shakespeare Marathon will be accepted for qualification.
When the runners have completed the required two laps they will finish back in the town, at the recreation ground.
